Re: Wheel lock for wind vane

Hi Miles,

The helm lock on my 1982 Maramu is not a complicated affair.  There is a knurled, round handle imbedded in a threaded rod that threads into a slot at the bottom of the helm hub.  The threaded rod pushes against a clutch-like pad that arrests the helm shaft.  If you have all the parts it's pretty easy to re-install.

Sorry, don't have pictures.
